    Good:
    Linkin Park
    limpbizkit

    Bad:
    Blink 182


    limpbizkit have by far the best live show, it has so much energy, and on the recent B2B tour, they have won alot of respect, and stole the show, and they arnt the main act

    Back in the early days of Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park wasn't exactly the greatest, but now they sound almost like the Albums

    Good
    There are SO many bands I have seen live but a few good ones would be:
    Good Charlotte: Seriously, they have an AMAZING live show. If you think their music sucks, their live show will make you think twice.
    Linkin Park: Of course they kick ass live.
    Mest: Excellent, high energy show but lead singer Tony swears A LOT and it's not necessary that he does that.
    Simple Plan: They're pretty good live and really funny.
    Aerosmith: Nothing can top an Aerosmith show. They are unbelievable live.

    Bad
    I haven't seen a bad live band yet.

    I thought Creed was just bad in general.

    Anyway...good live bands: as I haven't been to many shows, just The Living End. And the Peppers.

    Bad live bands: The White Stripes. Something Corporate.

    As for the above post: Aerosmith's good live, as long as they don't show up trashed.

    -Misfits..the current group

    Are you talking about when they were the band HT, or the CD?


    I know LP sucked live when the CD came out. Chester sounded horrible, especially during Crawling.


    Good:
    Slipknot
    Linkin Park
    Tool
    Nine Inch Nails

    Bad:
    Eve6
    Eminem
    Guns 'n' Roses (Chinese Democracy Era, if you can call it an era)
    Black Eyed Peas
    Metallica
    Limpbizkit



    I haven't seen some of those bands live, on both lists mind you, but I've watched the live DVD's and listened to the live CD's, and you can tell when they don't tamper with the concert. Limpbizkit is horrible live though, IMO.

    I've only seen three. And they were all on T.V. :lol:

    Good: Linkin Park

    Decent: Nickleback (As much as I hate them, they have their good and bad shows. Like in St. John's at the Juno's, they sucked. But the outdoor concert they did for MuchMusic, it actually sounded good.)

    Bad: Sum 41
